I was craving something fruity when I threw this delightful little salad together. I threw in some quinoa & greens for some extra nutritional power, and wow, the combo turned out excellently!

This salad has a subtle coconut flavor that nicely complements the fruit, and some crunch & chewiness from the edamame and dried cranberries--such a pleasing mix of textures & flavors! Throw on some rich & spicy dressing, and you are in for a real treat...perfect for these warmer days...
